Center for Excellence in Primary Care-Health Coach Training

Health coaching is a patient-centered process that promotes longitudinal, relationship-based interactions with patients to engage them in their own care. Health Coaching helps patients build the knowledge, skills, and confidence required to manage their chronic conditions and improve their health. Health coaches empower patients to share in decision making during clinical encounters and to engage in self-management activities in the environments where they spend most of their time, such as home, work, and school.
